Things I love Early in the Morning

1) The doorbell ringing at 8 AM.

2) The doorbell ringing at 8 AM when you don't have to be into work til 11:30.

3) A roommate answering the door, but only after you decide that you have to answer it and so you get out of bed, but before you get downstairs you hear the front door being opened.

4) A carpenter knocking on your Door at 8:30 AM so that he can take window measurements, after you have fallen back to sleep.

5) The fact that even while half asleep you know that the 2 windows in your room are different sizes, and have to tell this to the carpenter, who has only measured 1 window, and has just said, "well, they are both the same size so you don't have to move those plants."

Kona, actually, took Boris' place.

Tricky on the other hand has not returned. He was last seen sucking on the tail pipe of a school bus.

Is Kona the person who took Guilio's place as a new roommate? And you keep him in a cage? Human suffering, I tell you!

Kona hurt his left knee this weekend. He is now confined to his cage until it heals. Wish for his speedy recovery.

'Flyer of the day': my friend Brian, who used to work with me at Children's Hospital (he showed up at the going-away party with his two beautiful kids) now is staying in Denmark for two months to do some experiments there; he heard that me and Clarissa broke up so … this is the flyer he put all over Aalborg. ---- "Low mileage, carefully maintained Italian Stud looking for hot Danish babe.

I guess I figured out how to do this now, although I don't have anything to say. Here is some info for a band I recommend seeing if anyone is in NYC: www.twochicksandacasio.com. Happy birthday everyone - we're all getting OLD.

Guilio celebrated a birthday today. I haven't even started my taxes yet. No one I know has died today.

I'll fix all the links later. I believe that I will be hosting this site off of Jadedturtle when I get that back up.

It's my birthday present to myself.

We've relocated. Geocities sucks. They want money. We don't have money. We are all poor. This site will live on. 53 is dead long live 53.

One time I had a fig newton. It was de-frickin'-licious.
